Journal Entry:
Margaret and Craig got up early to go to the internet cafe, Margaret realized yesterday that she needed to get grad school applications in - now. We hung out at the hostel and went to pick them up at 11. Stopped at the tourist office and arranged our reservations for Etosha, filled up with gas and headed North.

Stopped at a crafts market somewhere on the road - there was a very cool giant wood airplane that I would have bought, except there was no way to transport it (4 x 3 x 2 feet). Shortly after our stop Margaret, Angie, Kim and I started having a few beers in the back. Craig (in the front) quickly joined us, but Dean behaved himself and abstained.

Pulled into a random municipal campsite at around 6 pm. Looking at the map we made much better distance than expected.
